  • Seattle band La Luz debuted a new track today from their upcoming album, It’s Alive on Hardly Art. “Pink Slime” is full of deliciously eerie organs and perfectly synced four part doo-wops. Combine a plot about a cool girl gang and a spooky beach party and you would probably end up with La Luz as the entire soundtrack of what would surely be a wonderful movie.  Listen at Stereogum.

  • Sebadoh has a simple new video for a complex song. In the video for “I Will”, we get to see Lou Barlow’s notebooks, his scratchy handwriting, and his fairly large sized cats walking around. Defend Yourself is Sebadoh’s first album since 1999 and will be released tomorrow on Sub Pop. [Stereogum]

  • Daft Punk‘s disco throw-back space-future sentiments are totally encapsulated in their new video for “Lose Yourself to Dance”. The duo is joined by Pharrell and Nile Rodgers as they oversee an giant repetitive and vintage-feeling dance party. While part of the video aired during the VMA’s, you can now watch the whole video.

  • If there is anything that music videos have taught us about tennis, it’s probably that it is among the more emotionally expressive sports that can be filmed. Yuck proves this again with their video for “Middle Sea”, in which a battle becomes more and more intense until one character finally pushes the other too far. [Stereogum]

  • There are loads of cool/fun/weird things you can do when you choose not to go to work, or to that party, or to school – and Superchunk’s video for “Staying Home” documents the ones you’re probably going to want to take part in. Eating from a toilet? Check. Making a mask of yourself? Check. [Stereogum]
